Teachings on The Bodhicaryavatara


Khenpo Konchok Monlam

The Bodhicharyavatara 
The Way of the Bodhisattva          by Shantideva

The foremost text on Buddhist conduct for the Bodhisattva Path
by an 8th-century Indian Buddhist monk and scholar at Nalanda University in ancient India.

“If I have any understanding of compassion and the bodhisattva path, it all comes from studying this  text.”  – H.H. 14th Dalai Lama

Teachings by Khenpo Konchok Monlam, one of the most learned Khenpos of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. Khenpo is one of the head teachers at Kagyu College, the philosophical school where Drikung monks and lamas are trained in Dehra Dun, India. He received the title of Khenpo in 2009 from H.H. Drikung Chetsang Rinpoche  and has taught for eleven years at Kagyu College. In addition, Khenpo authored a book on basic Buddhist teachings for the young monks at Drikung Kagyu Institute.
